So it was raining all day. We decided to play in a cave. When we came out we ran up the path and around the corner to catch the most amazing sunset I've seen on this island yet.

About halfway climbing up Hihimanu a few months ago, we ran into a couple of guys who were coming down the trail. When I asked them how much futher they laughed and said, "To the top? Oh, you're not gonna make it to the top. We were up a little ways futher but then it just gets too sketchy. I'm not sure if it was out of my stubbornness or determination butt by golly we made it up every stinking rope- Tired, scraped up, bruised limbs and all.
